Vlada's older brother Misha, her only blood relative besides her daughter, was in a horrible house fire in their hometown of Zaporozhye. More than half of his body is covered with 3rd-degree burns. He is currently in the Intensive Care Unit going through at least 2 surgeries a week and multiple blood transfusions.
While doctors in the hospital in Zaporozhye are fighting for his life, they do not have even the most common necessities such as syringes, needles, antibiotics, painkillers, and wound dressing supplies etc. Just to describe how desperate the situation is - they connect a catheter to an old plastic soda bottle :(
Vlada is currently by her brother's bedside, taking care of him. Every day she gets the list of supplies and medications that she needs to provide, which costs about $80-90 a day.
As you all know, Vlada works as a hospital nurse. Some of her co-workers (medical doctors in the USA) saw the pictures and learned about his emergency health condition. Their medical opinion is that his chances for survival with such extensive burns are low, but with proper care, they increase drastically. Even with the best outcome, the recovery process for him will take months or even years.
The cost of such care will be unbearable for Vlada alone, so we, Vlada's close friends and co-workers, decided to create this Gofundme campaign to help raise funds for medical bills and the life-saving care Vlada's brother needs.
Please consider donating, because any amount could truly help to save Misha's life!
